Knowing When It’s Time to Say Goodbye

It can sometimes be difficult to determine when your pet has reached the end of their life, and we recommend speaking with your veterinarian to help you make a decision. When trying to decide if euthanasia is the next step for your pet, our team will evaluate your pet’s quality of life by evaluating the following:

  • Has your pet stopped eating or drinking?
  • Is your pet able to walk or move unassisted?
  • Does your pet seem to be in pain?
  • Does your pet have chronic diarrhea or vomiting?
  • Is your pet more lethargic instead of interacting with you or your family?
  • Have they been having unusual accidents around the house?

What to Expect with Cat and Dog Euthanasia

Euthanasia is the most respectful and peaceful way to relieve a pet from their suffering. Our team treats your pet with the utmost respect and care to ensure they are comfortable and stress free. When you come in for your appointment, we’ll place an IV catheter to administer sedative. Once your pet is asleep, we’ll administer the euthanasia injection. We can make arrangements with a company called Faithful Companions, which offers cremation services and a variety of keepsakes to choose from.

Please let us know if you’re concerned for your pet’s wellbeing and considering euthanasia, but still have uncertainties.

Our team in Abilene, TX will be glad to help you and put your mind a little more at ease.
